Flint Hills Regional Council

Flint Hills Regional Council, Inc. is a voluntary association of governments that was incorporated as a Kansas non-profit cooperation on January 27, 2010. Its members are made up of general purpose local governments. The Board of Directors is made up of elected officials from those general purpose local government FHRC members and advisory directors including Fort Riley, Kansas State University, and the Governor’s Military Council. Initial funding was provided by the Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment as well as FHRC Member assessments. Initial office space is provided by Fort Riley.

The expansion of Fort Riley provided the most recent impetus for launching the Flint Hills Regional Council through the Regional Planning Organization (RPO) Project process. The RPO project was a collaborative effort of the Flint Hills Region to design a new organization, a “Regional Planning Organization”, to address common challenges. This effort produced the Flint Hills Regional Council (FHRC).

FHRC Vision
